Restorative yoga is a deeply relaxing and healing yoga practice that focuses on stimulating your parasympathetic system with the intent of calming the body and mind. It is often practiced with the help of props such as bolsters, blocks, yoga belts, and blankets with the aim of supporting the body while exerting little physical effort in each yoga pose.
A practice often sought out to heal the mind, restorative yoga is a gentle yet powerful form of yoga that promotes deep rest and relaxation. It encourages the practitioner to move beyond stress, anxiety or pain. The main goal of restorative yoga is to help encourage movement and mobility through gentle movements and yoga postures in a safe and supportive environment, making it the ideal practice for those wanting to slow down from their hectic city schedule or those recuperating from injuries.
Additionally, guided meditation is included with this healing practice for pain relief and to cultivate a relaxed meditative state to promote an even deeper restoration of the body and mind.
